Let's Get The Sh*t Out

Like the idea of raw sewage flowing out of broken sewer systems into Puget Sound?  Me neither.

That's why I'm emailing my State Senators asking them to support HB 1458 which requires that local governments identify and clean up failing septic systems in areas of Puget Sound that are not meeting water quality standards. 

The bill passed out of the House this weekend with a bipartisan 70-26 vote.  Now it's working its way through the Senate.  It failed by two votes in the Senate last year, so a little extra pressure now makes a big difference.
